Vampires Be Gone ~ Roasted Garlic

One of my favorite things in life is fresh roasted garlic on a warm piece of multigrain bread, sprinkled with fresh Parmesan cheese. It's simple, but oh so delicious! If you've never roasted your own garlic before, please do. I promise you'll wonder what took you so long.

To roast garlic, all you have to do is cut a small piece off the top of the bulb to expose all the cloves inside, drizzle with olive oil, add a sprinkle of salt and fresh ground black pepper. Then, just wrap it in foil and bake in a 375 degree oven for about 45 minutes. When the garlic is ready, just squeeze the bottom of the bulb and the roasted cloves come right out!

Cooking the garlic takes away a lot of it's intensity and results in a soft, buttery clove that is excellent spread on bread, stirred into mashed potatoes, added to soups or served with steak. YUM! I think I'll go have some right now!

We LOVE garlic. I am going to make this this weekend. Looks DELICIOUS!!!! We also like cooked onions. My husband cooks them in a cast iron skillet out on the grill. Then we eat them on top of grilled steak! Yum!
